A guide to turning your Christmas lights into a shining display of American pride with Twinkly

Have you ever wondered how you can use your Christmas lights to make your 4th of July party shine? It’s easy with Twinkly LED smart lights, the only lights that can be used to wave the American flag to show your patriotism on Independence Day (and amp up the atmosphere of any other holiday for that matter).

In this article, we’ll explore ways to set up your Twinkly Christmas lights for July 4th festivities and also take a close look at how to play the most patriotic LED animations around. Twinkly outdoor smart LED lights feature a premium design and resist weather for year-round use. Stay assured that they will shine brightly and provide an ultra-vibrant atmosphere for all your guests to enjoy.

Read on to discover how to make your string lights vibe with precise animations and USA-centric designs – from the star-spangled banner to virtual firework shows. These patriotic themes and ideas are also great for decorating Memorial Day celebrations and events.


Set up your lights for a DIY LED light show

First, identify the Twinkly smart LED lights you will use and the possible places to hang them for a screen-like display. If you have Twinkly Curtain, you can hang them from any window, wall, railing or overhang. Its hang-and-play design makes it ideal for instant decoration. For denser lighting, hang more than one curtain light together in an overlapping fashion.


If you have Twinkly Strings, you can cover hedges and wrap them around the sides or the top of a pergola. You can also string lights from column to column under a covered porch, creating a wall of LED lights. If you don’t have anywhere to hang your Strings smart lights - like support beams and columns - but have backyard space, use fixing poles. Install them safely into the ground and use them as anchors to design your own smart light “screen”.

Are you using more than one set of lights? No problem. Group them to create one large display. Lights can be placed on top of or next to each other, in any position. Simply map your smart lights separately after you connect them to the Twinkly app. Then Create a group. You will instantly have to choose to create a sync group or an area group. A sync group allows different devices to play the same effect at the same time. An area group links all smart LED lights together, to function as a single unit.
